First practice Thursday, June 3, 2021
4-H Dairy Judging is back from a one-year COVID hiatus, and it’s time to start practicing! Please join us for the first practice on Friday, June 3, RyanVu Dairy (Mark & Chad Ryan families), N3934 Hwy 175, Fond du Lac!
What is dairy judging? Individual 4-Hers judge a class of four (4) dairy animals, place them in order based on confirmation, and have their results compared to the actual judge. Generally, there are 6 to 8 classes of dairy animals to judge with 2 to 3 classes where questions are asked (for Jr contestants) or reasons are given (for Sr contestants) after the class is judged and the animals are away. The classes can be any dairy breed, and any age group (calves, heifers, cows, etc.). This is a great opportunity to learn more about dairy selection so you can use what you learn to select your future dairy project animals!
This year’s contest will be Wednesday, June 16, 2021 in Marathon County, allowing our older dairy youth to participate in the State FFA Convention.
Practices will be held at 6:30 pm and will include:
- Thursday, June 3: RyanVu Dairy, Mark & Chad Ryan, N3934 Hwy 175, Fond du Lac
- Thursday, June 10: Forest Ridge Dairy, Kurt & Sarah Loehr, W2133 Randellen Lane, Eden
- Sunday, June 13: Evan & Taylor Schrauth, N2863 Stumpf Road, Waupun
Joe Loehr will serve as coach and Chad Ryan will help where needed. For any questions, contact Joe Loehr at 920-517-9216 or email@example.com
